A conservative Fox News contributor may be tapped to work in President Trump’s administration.

Sources say Mercedes Schlapp is currently in discussions regarding a senior role in the White House’s Communications Department.

Previously, Schlapp worked for the Bush administration as director of Specialty Media.

If selected she would bring much needed experience to President Trump’s embattled communications team.

This comes after Anthony Scaramucci was fired from the department after a tumultuous 10 days in office.

The White House has yet to confirm these claims.

    Ever notice how Trump and Obama are polar opposites? Obama loaded his WH up with CZARs like the openly communist Van, and others who violated laws (like Geitner, etc.) while Trump loads his WH with people who have a history of being loyalists to America and who are DOERS that have proven their intelligence and love of country.
    WOW! What a difference! A GOOD difference, too!

      But now we have the Antifa movement, which bases its actions on the Bolsheviks of 100 years ago. And we know how THAT turned out!

  • Thangamma

    No SPECULATION! PLEASE! OAN. Just facts. Thank You ! Now Fox did fire Eric Bolling on some trumped up charge by a liberal Occidental College lightweight totally unsubstantiated. OAN should hire Eric Bolling ! He is a good man ! GO TRUMP! GO STOCKS ! THANGAMMA 🙂

  • Alton Windsor

    Mercedes and Matt are solid and her move to the White House would be a positive one.

  • Michael T

    Mercedes Schlapp should replace Sarah Sanders who has shown herself to be a total embarrassment and over her head.

    • Alton Windsor

      Sarah is doing fine and holds her own when dealing w/ media.

  • Lurker

    OANN needs to be putting on their own version of Outnumbered or The Five or get BOR to get me to turn to the channel

  • RMB38

    Any conservative or Republican who still works at Fox News had better start looking for other work, because Fox is moving left. Sean Hannity and Judge Jeanine are about the only ones remaining at Fox.

    • Rattler269

      Kimberly Guilfoyle, Jesse Watters, Lisa Boothe are pretty good also.

      • constitutiononly

        Eh, Guilfoyle doesn’t wear enough clothes.

        • Rattler269

          Wow! That’s your complaint. I guess a burka would suit you?

        • Alton Windsor

          You do have a problem. KG always looks good.

      • REAL AMERICAN

        I like Tucker Carlson, too, but MOST of FOX has veered left ….. because that is what FOX wanted after they finally ditched Roger Aisles. Have you noticed that all of the women who claimed (not proven) Aisles came on to them have left FOX after he got fired??? Where are they?

    • Glo S

      They’re moving further left you mean…as they have always had more Libs than anything. I turned them off long ago

    • slohunter

      Judge Jeanine, next Supreme Court Justice.

    • REAL AMERICAN

      Shepherd Smith …. FOX’s Cooper Anderson.

      • RMB38

        Shepard Smith was the first Fox News commentator to make a noticeable left turn, subtle at first, and now a whole bunch of them are headed that way. Roger Aisle’s departure was an indicator, but Rupert Murdoch turned operations over to his sons, and that’s when the change REALLY became evident. OANN is on the verge of taking the territory which Fox is abandoning.

  • FLLoeffler

    OANN please don’t go the way of the Fox “News” Show. I really like your format, more news no B.S. from Fox’s talking heads! No more attorneys that think they know everything!

      You mean they didn’t?

    • Evan

      I AGREE! Do not capitulate to the globalist threats!

  • FreedomFighter

    Don’t start reporting heresy/rumors OAN. Just facts please. If they do hire her it would be a good thing though.

  • Linda Brock

    Good choice. I hope she gets picked.
